Question about Polaroid OneStep Express Instant Camera

1 Answer

Taking the picture

After I take the picture do i have to hold the button down or anything or a certain amount of time for the film to come out. I just got this camera and there wasen't any instructions for it. It came with 2 sets of 600 film, and when i turned it on, the light went green, does that mean there is film already inside?
Thanks!

The green ligth means the flash is charged, but it should come out by itself almost as you shoot. There's probably no energy in the battery pack (includded in the film cartridge.)

Hello. I just got a Mamiya C330, looks really nice but I note that the little release botton in front of the camera is inside I can;t take it out. my question is this could affect to take picture or I...


This button you speak of is an alternate way of depressing the shutter it is also a way in which you can use a shutter release cord to take pictures. the button itself is not meant to come out of the camera. Once you load your film or 2 empty film spools (to test to see if the camera is working properly) into the camera and wind the film crank then you will be able to depress that button and fire the shutter.

My Mamiya C330 Pro only gives me 4 photos per roll


A few things to consider:
-Loading: Make sure you are not over loading the film before you start to shoot. I have sometimes turned the film advance too many times and end up cutting down on the amount of usable film.
-Are you loading the film in a dark area and careful to close up the back just after it has started to load to avoid exposing it?
-Shooting: Are you metering properly when shooting? Obviously underexposed images won't develop. You should consider a hand held meter.
-Shooting: Are you advancing the film more than it needs to be after you take your shot? Watch the film counter and feel for that click as it hits the next frame. I have advanced past the next shot many times by accident.
Hope that helps, Matt

When i turn on my fuji polaroid cam, there is an "E" error message. I can't take any polaroid pictures with it altho the polaroid cam is loaded with film. Please help. Thanks


First, remove the remaining films from the camera. (while your camera is switched off) Second, press on both the shutter button and the power button at the same time. (to reset) Third, reload a new set of polaroid films into the camera.
Hope it helps!

If it is a grey day out should i really use N mode? If i use B mode how long should i hold it down for?


You should only use B mode if it is pretty much dark out.Operating the shutter manually is nearly impossible to determine the time you need.When I was on a carrier,I took pictures when plane were taking off at night.You could seen the jet blast,the lights,and an outline of the plane.As well as I tried,the lights still came out somewhat wobbly.You really need a tripod for B exposures.For example,if there were a way to hold the button down,on a tripod,during the entire night,you could see the star trails due to Earth's rotation.Those are a couple of examples for the best way to use B mode.Any exposure about 1 second or less is very difficult to do manually,so yes,use N mode.Greg

I just bought new Lomo Fisheye2 camera. I read the instruction first before i will do anything to my camera. Once i read everything, i just follow the instruction step by step. Putting AA battery and...


If your film was TOTALLY blank then it's been bleached due to a processing error. By totally blank, I mean that there are no frame numbers or other film markings on your blank film. Otherwise, you simply have an unexposed film.

First, operate the camera with the camera back open, hold the camera up to a bright light and operate the camera as you look into the back of the lens. If you see a brief bit of light coming through as you operate the shutter then the shutter is admitting light into the camera and so you should have got some kind of an image unless you failed to correctly load the film (very common).

Unfortunately, there's no way to tell unless you try another roll of film. Once the film is loaded, turn the rewind crank gently to take up slack film and take a few pictures; each time you advance the film the rewind crank should turn a little. If it doesn't then the film has not been correctly loaded as the film leader has not engaged onto the take-up spool. If so, open the camera and re-engage the film. If it clearly has engaged, then the take-up spool is failing to rotate when the film is advanced: try taking a few shots and winding on the film with the back open. If the film is not advancing then you have a faulty Lomo. This is extremely common as it is a plastic toy camera with atrocious build quality and materials and is the FishEye is only designed for paltry ten rolls of film lifespan.

A final check for film which has not advanced through the camera is if the rewind is extremely short when the film has finished.

Bad film or Camera.


Return the camera to the company and see if you can get a return or at least an even exchange. Get another roll of film and shoot casual stuff. Never test a camera, film or digital for the first time at any mission critical event like an anniversary or wedding. It can lead to potential disaster. Shoot the roll with the new camera if you got it exchanged and then have it developed at Walmart or wherever is cheapest. If it works, keep it. If not, don't. BTW, if you are ever going to have to shoot a wedding or anything ever again with a film point and shoot and don't want hassles, just get disposable cameras. They are designed to work out of the box with no problems. They are of higher quality then most people think for image qulity.

Polaroid used to make good instant cameras, but their 35mm film and digital stuff I wouldn't trust as much. It's not the real Polaroid which can makes only instant film gear. . It's another company using the Polaroid brand name to try and make otherwise generic stuff look better then it is. Their digital cameras have a poor reputation. I don't think their non instant film cameras are much better. Good luck.

Flashing E


That usually means there is no film in the camera or it has rewound and the film needs to be removed. To be sure, you should open the film door in a dark room with no light from windows or doorways.
